About Tammy Wong Hulbert
Tammy Wong Hulbert is an artist, curator and academic based in Melbourne, Australia. Born in Australia to Cantonese Chinese parents, her art practice has a particular interest in the complicated, multi-layered and often fragmented space between cultures. Her recent works have often involved a socially engaged practice working with various urban communities, in particular addressing issues of migration, belonging and encouraging an inclusive city. As a curator she has worked with a wide range of Australian and Chinese contemporary artists in both Sydney, Melbourne and China. In her curatorial projects she is interested in bridging the gap between Australia and Asia through the creation of dialogue in relation to these regions. In 2008-11 she completed her PhD researching The City as a Curated Space at RMIT University, investigating how the urban condition has an impact on the way artists and urban communities are able to engage with these environments.
